Ah hah! I knew there was a shortage of good used trailers! As soon as I advertised my well maintained stocktrailer for under 4G's I had a flood of calls & 1st person bought it. I took the ads down immediately & am still getting calls on it.

Well yes I bought a brand new trailer, & it was priced about the same as or a bit more that I paid for one of my horses. Other horse I got as weanling, I traded his 1/2 sister weanling for him.

I could really care less about comparing the horse price to reflect the haul price. My horses are worth way more in the terms of time & training. My husband wanted to buy me a special mother's day gift as I recently became a grandma, so that's what he bought me. Better than some family ring like my friend got, for a horseperson anyways.
